      “Our way must be: never knowingly support lies! having understood where the lies begin—step back from that gangrenous edge! Let us not glue back the flaking scale of the Ideology, not gather back its crumbling bones, nor patch together its decomposing garb, and we will be amazed how swiftly and helplessly the lies will fall away, and that which is destined to be naked will be exposed as such to the world.”—Alexander Solzhenitsyn[1]

      Myths are any story or song you make up expressing your view: Myths are the OPPOSITE of LOGOS or God's only free instructing and "spiritual formation" power.

      People make up myths, says Jesus of the Pharisees, because they knew that God would never let them sell the free water of the WORD.

      Is. 55:1 Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money;
      .....come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come,
      ..... buy wine and milk without money and without price.
      Is. 55:2 Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread?
      .....and your labour for that which satisfieth not?
      .....hearken diligently unto me,
      .....and eat ye that which is good,
      .....and let your soul delight itself in fatness.

      .....John 6:63 It is the spirit that quickeneth;
      .....the flesh profiteth nothing: the WORDS that I SPEAK unto you,
      .....they are SPIRIT, and they are life.


      Jesus never SANG the WORD and nothing you self-author has nay SPIRIT or any LIFE. In Amos 8 and Isaiah 5 music is connected to STARVING the people for lack of the WORD. So, you gotta do what you gotta do because Jude says that you are FOREORDAINED.

      Is. 55:3 Incline your ear, and come unto me: HEAR, and your soul shall live;
      .....and I will make an EVERLASTING covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David.

      Is. 55:4 Behold, I have given HIM
      .....for a witness to the people,
      .....a leader
      .....and commander to the people.
      Is. 55:5 Behold, thou shalt call a nation that thou knowest not,
      .....and nations that knew not thee shall run unto thee
      .....because of the LORD thy God,
      .....ANDfor the Holy One of Israel;
      .....for he hath glorified thee.
      Is. 55:6 Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:
      Is. 55:7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man HIS THOUGHTS
      .....and let him return unto the LORD,
      .....and he will have mercy upon him;
      .....and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.


      Did anyone hear anything but HIS THOUGHTS this morning? That's fine, most people pay a huge price for anyone who will perform rhetoric or music where "music" was always callled "sacred violence" Purpose Driven to "Shut the mouth of the Victim." Girard says:

      5.4.2 Behind the anthropological predilections against the victim's perspective, there is a very practical, quasi-historical reason: namely, the victim is shunned and often killed. In the ancient world, the role of music during ritual sacrifice was often to drown out any cries from the victim. (45) It is crucial that the victim not be heard. The practical mechanics of making victims means that it is unusual for the victim's perspective to survive. In the world of ancient ritual it was probably impossible.

      45. The Greek verb myo means to close the mouth or shut the eyes. There is debate about whether myo plays a crucial role in the etymology of other significant words such as myth, mystery, and even music. These etymologies make sense within the Girardian hypotheses. Myth means to close ourselves to the victim and tell the tale according to the perpetrator's perspective; mystery cults are based on the silence of the victims; music derives from drowning out the voice of the victim.

      D.S.15.7 Diororus, Siculus. 15.7.[2] Dionysius did not renounce his zeal for poetry but dispatched to the Olympic Games2 actors with the most pleasing voices who should present a musical performance of his poems for the assembled throng. At first their pleasing voices filled the hearers with admiration, but later, on further reflection, the reciters were despised and rewarded with laughter. [3] Dionysius, on learning of the slight that was cast upon his poems, fell into a fit of melancholy.3 His condition grew constantly worse and a madness seized his mind, so that he kept saying that he was the victim of jealousy and suspected all his friends of plotting against him. At last his frenzy and madness went so far that he slew many of his friends on false charges, and he drove not a few into exile, among whom were Philistus and his own brother Leptines, men of outstanding courage who had rendered him many important services in his wars. [4] These men, then, passed their banishment in Thurii in Italy where they were cordially welcomed by the Italian Greeks. Later, at the request of Dionysius, they were reconciled with him and returned to Syracuse where they enjoyed his former goodwill, and Leptines married Dionysius' daughter.

    ...........................THE BOOK

    What Happened at the Madison Church of Christ?


    There are thousands of churches being taken over across America.

    This book is only about one of those churches. It's about the Madison Church Of Christ. By studying the methods used here along with the resource references you might be able to inoculate your church. At the very least you will recognize the signs early on.

    Many of the current members of the Madison Church of Christ still don't know what happened.
    Some never will know! This book is for them as well.

    Madison Church of Christ was a 60 year old church. At one time it was one of the largest churches in the US, and the largest Church of Christ.

    It thrived for many years on the vision of it's elders and those of it's ministers. Those visions undoubtably came from the the inspired word of Jesus Christ.

    At sometime in the last 10 years there was a deliberate plan by a majority of the elders to take the Madison Church of Christ into a more worldly realm.

    They used secrecy, covert planning, and outside sources to scheme and to change the format and direction of the Madison Church of Christ.

    The Elders knew that the membership would never approve such a plan. Using the tools of the "Community Church Movement"(consultants, books, seminars, meetings,planters,seeders) they slowly started initiating change so it was never noticed by the members until it was too late.....

    At the heart of the plan was the fact that old members were going to be driven off so new techniques could be used to go out and reach the unchurched through new "Contemporary Holy Entertainment" methods developed by the "Community Church Movement"

    Old members had to be kept on board long enough to get their plans ready, or the funds would not be there to pay for the new building. So by the plans very nature, it had to be secret.

    The church had no plan in effect to renew or approve elders. There was never any need. The elders had always been "as approved by God". 10 of the last 15 elders would begin to shed some doubt on that.

    The Elders did not even need a majority at first, because some of the elders went along unwittingly.

    This edition starts shortly after some of the members begin to smell something strange in January 2001. Later editions may go back and fill in some of the timeline.

    To even start to understand whats happening here, you must read the background materials in the first of the book.

    This is only the first edition, and not the end. New editions will be printed as needed. To keep abreast of current changes, please visit our web site; http://www.concernedmembers.com/madison

    Here is the list of players;

    5 Godly Elders
    10 Not so Godly Elders
    120 "Deacons" (allegiance unknown)
    2,800 - 4,000 church "members"
    2 "teners" (people who have publicly confessed to have broken all ten commandments)
    Unknown number of "sinners" (This is what the 10 elders call us.)
    Unknown number of "demons" (Flying everywhere, to many to count)
